Professional Patenting Help Recommended
Patenting is a complex process. Prior art searching is complicated and time consuming. Patent application writing a thorough, complete, properly formatted specification includes a well written description, claims, and abstract that fully describe to a person skilled in the art how to make and use the invention. A patent is about its claims, but often drawings are needed to show clearly what it is in the description. Both the specification and drawings have prescribed formatting, layout, organizational structure, and submittal requirements. Filing and prosecuting patent applications is governed by many, many rules and procedures.

Invention disclosures to patent practitioners are covered by client controlled privilege. Information disclosed about an invention cannot be used or shared without your permission. Patent agents hold the same basic professional liability insurance as that held by attorneys, just limited to the practice of patent prosecution.
You can talk to a patent practitioner (patent agent or patent attorney) about your invention just like you can talk to your lawyer about your contract or divorce. You are free to discuss your invention with a patent agent or patent attorney. They are under a legal obligation to keep your information confidential, unless you instruct otherwise.

Note: At the patent office, newly filed applications are treated as confidential for about 18 months. After this initial period, patent applications are published by the USPTO (AppFT database). In other words, patent pending applications are not public for about a year and a half, but then applications are published. We can request that an application not be published. However, issued patents are made available to public by the USPTO (PatFT database). Communication with Carson Patents® is confidential. Contact us to start the steps to patent for your invention.
